* AuthorAvatar: She was the booker for Wild Women Of Wrestling.



* CombatCommentator: In Wild Women Of Wrestling



* EvilCounterpart: To Wrestling/BeulahMcgillicutty in ECW, though Vachon was the {{face}} because she was brought by Tommy Dreamer and [=McGillicutty=] did a HeelFaceTurn anyway.
* EvilIsPetty: Repeated failed to beat Madusa in WCW, but successfully contributed to Madusa never winning a women's title in the promotion by aiding Akira Hokuto. In fact, backing wrestlers [[EnemyMine simply because they happened to be against Madusa]] was a past time of Luna's.



* FauxActionGirl: Against Sable. Sable had too much plastic surgery to the point where she couldn't get roughed up by anybody.

* FauxActionGirl: Against Sable. Sable had too much plastic surgery to the point where she couldn't get roughed up by anybody. Her most effective offense was pulling Sable around during a [[GimmickMatches strap match]].



* IHaveManyNames: Was the traveling wrestler Angelle Vachon before becoming the reporter Trudy Herd in FCW, prior to being taken by the Army Of Darkness and becoming Luna. She was primarily known as "Angel Baby" during her American Wrestling Federation run.



* OvershadowedByAwesome: The fact that she was the second woman to crack Pro Wrestling Illustrated's top 500 list is often forgotten due to the fact her [[Wrestling/{{Jacqueline}} Miss Texas]] had beaten her to it.

* ArchEnemy: Picked fights with Sensational Sherri when she first debuted, intending to dethrone her as the WWF's dominant woman. Sherri's first response was basically ''"Dear Luna, your first error is in thinking I GAF about you, even for a second. Because I don't, is what I'm saying. I can't count on you to get it without me spelling it out"'', before [[TalkToTheFist kicking her in the throat]]. They feuded for awhile before both left the Federation due to health concerns.

** Madusa[=/=]Alundra Blayze, combining Memphis, WWE and WCW. Nope, no love lost between these two, either; Miceli had friends in high places (Wrestling/EddieGilbert, Wrestling/RickRude, and Wrestling/KevinNash) whereas Luna did not. There's an old interview with Luna in ''WWF magazine'', and within her tirade of insults towards "[[strike:[=MaDOUCHEa=]]]" Alundra, she even refers to her as a ring rat.

* CheapHeat: Her challenging Sable to an Evening Gown Match at ''Backlash 1998'', and the subsequent match itself, got the fans ''very'' much on her side, if only for one night, for obvious reasons. Still, it's better than [=X-Pac Heat=], or no heat at all.

* ICouldaBeenAContender: She returned at precisely the ''wrong'' time to the WWF--which was ironically the Wrestling/AttitudeEra--and was far too thin-skinned for pro wrestling in any case. Politically Luna was completely swamped by the other Divas and never held the women's title despite being screwed out of it 3 or 4 times. The whole affair tainted her career and left her with a ton of bitterness. It's telling that her principal mourners were people like Sullivan, [[Wrestling/ChristopherDaniels Daniels]], {{Wrestling/Daffney|Unger}} and Foley.
